    I purchased from local feed store as a pullet Ameraucana. Looks different than the others, rooster or hen and what color?
    Also, its much taller than my hens of same breed and same age.

    Not an Ameraucauna; it's an easter egger, and a roo. I bet he's gorgeous when he's all filled & feathered out! [​IMG]
